Managing Your Course

ProctorU

ProctorU is an online proctoring service. It uses video-based web conferencing with two-way remote access to provide a live, online proctor for students to take exams online.  The University of Texas at Arlington has integrated ProctorU with Blackboard.  Students can now schedule proctoring through the Blackboard course, and faculty can send exams to ProctorU from the course shell.

ProctorU Tips

  • ProctorU is incompatible with Respondus Lockdown Browser: Respondus Lockdown Browser requires all other programs be shut down befrore entering the exam.  ProctorU uses a two-way remote access program and a video conference tool for the proctor to watch the student and log them into the test.
  • Remember to put a link in the course menu to the ProctorU student tools so students can schedule the sessions.
  • Any exam or test sent to ProctorU must have a password on it.
  • Each student pays for their own proctoring sessions, per session.  All payment occurs on ProctorU's website and goes to ProctorU.  The fee structure is based on an hourly rate.
